Yeah I get it if you wanna spend 400$ and want gains certainly steer clear from a CAI. But a free one seems like a sweet deal to me lol
He got it for free, probably b/c the previous owner realized it was really a Hot Air Intake.... not a CAI.
If this is what he got for free, I'd put it in the garbarge before I put it on my car:
1. Its a H
OT engine comparment A
2. It will suck up water that drips in from the hood air extractors on the 13-14's.
The only kind of "CAI" I'd consider is a closed box style, that truly sucks ONLY cold air in from the front of the car, AND has the water protection since I have a 2014 with the hood vents.
